Thoughts on this CAI

Ford Racing 85mm Cold Air Intake (05-09 GT)

After looking over most of the CAI's that are available I have narrowed it down to the Ford CAI. I think it looks the best and warranty wise its a good move or so im told. I would just like some other thoughts on this before I pull the trigger. The engine is basically a stock 4.6 with Bullitt axlebacks on it. I already spoke to a local tuner here in town that will dyno the set-up for me. So, im all ears....LOL

Hi Ruffy,

The FRPP CAI is a nice looking CAI and is one of the only ones on the market CARB approved if you live in a state which reguires that.

However, your added rwhp & rwtorque comes from more air @ a larger then stock CAI & MAF (80mm) meter. The FRPP CAI is only 85mm. Most of your gain is going to come from the tune over this actual size CAI. I had the very same CAI on my 2005 GT, gained 24+/- hp dyno tuned. Before I knew about Tunable Induction I installed their '05-'10 GT 100mm intake/95mm maf meter CAI and gained 42 rwhp dyno tuned. You can get a larger CAI/MAF then 95 mm, but that's more air then your stock throttle body can pass so it's not really beneficial.

TI '05-'10 CAI, clear coat black or color matched to your car (intake & heat shield), multi-color filters:

Good Luck.

I see you are in Jacksonville and it get hot there. The advantage of the FRPP intake is that it does not use any metal pipes or mounts for the MAF sensor. This minimizes heat soak. Also the shroud for the FRPP has the best seal to take air from the outside of the engine bay unlike some others.

If you want a bigger intake than an FRPP look are the Airrad race model. This too has a good filer shroud and a larger MAF housing. Roush uses Airraid

Nice gain. Can you please post the dyno graphs for these 2 test runs? Thanks.

I have one and like for the same reason you like it, on the other hand it is only available with a paper element and no reuseable air filter available and replacements only available thru ford. however I did find a filter thru k/n with a little trimming and baking in the oven it fit nicely ( the wife was pissed for a few days oops)

I don't have those dynos as they went with the car folder when sold a few years back. My 42+/- rwhp was w/TI CAI w/Diablio tuner/custom dynoed. In TI Dynos below, 1st dyno, is a similar '05 GT w/TI CAI and SCT tuner/dynoed @ 38.2 rwhp & 44 rwtorque.

Did the dyno tuned 100 mm TI CAI have a 42 rwhp peak gain, or max gain over stock?

Have you seen our Steeda CAI? Steeda 2005-09 Mustang GT Cold Air Intake - Made in the USA 555-3131 555-3139 555-3120

We've seen between 30-35 HP and 25-30 ft/lbs TQ at the wheels with our CAI and tune. Independent test results have proven gains of over 4 HP and 5 ft/lbs of Torque over the entire RPM range of the so called 'leading brands'. We have a larger MAF housing and inlet tube along with a high-flow lifetime oiled air filter to increase airflow.

It's made in the USA and features a lifetime warranty. Let me know if I can help you with that.

Max Gain, peak gain is alway less. I do not remember what that was. You could look at that chart attached earlier and do the % math, it would be close.

Thanks for the clarification, since your initial post didn't specify if the 42 hp gain was max or peak-to-peak.

JLT has a 110mm CAI (JLT3) that's made entirely of a plstic if heatsoak is a concern.

Forged bottom end, Ported heads, Saleen super charger, 2.8 blower pulley/15psi, Dual stage water to air intercooler, AFCO heat exchanger, battery relocated, Twin GT500 fuel pumps, T-56 trans, Aluminum flywheel, Aluminum driveshaft, 3.73 rear gears, Eaton TruTrac Diff, TA Performance rear end girdle, Racecraft suspension system, UCA, LCA, panhard bar, 15" slotted front rotors w/ 6 piston calipers, Carbon Fiber front splitter/rear diffuser, and bunch of other stuff
RWHP/RWTQ is adequate
